The History of The Pecan
The American Pecan has deep roots in the history of North America. In fact, the pecan is the only major tree nut indigenous to North America. Pecan trees have thrived throughout the central and eastern parts of the continent for thousands of years, and we can trace much of their history back before European explorers ever arrived. The pecan is a nut that is unique to our part of the world. Its history is special to us, and it’s time to have a little American pride when it comes to buying nuts.Learn More
